NXT TakeOver: WarGames II Review
MATT RIDDLE VS. KASSIUS OHNO
Matt Riddle holds zero appeal for me. I’d like to see Ohno smash his jaw. Wait… what the fuck was that? Did they just bury the hell out of Kassius Ohno? Well I guess it’s more putting Riddle over, Ohno will be fine but… ok. I really just hate the stoner “bro” thing. Still, I’ll admit that was a great way to fire up the crowd to start the show.

HEAVY MACHINERY VS. FORGOTTEN SONS
Cutler and Blake compete for the Forgotten Sons. The Sons do a great job on tagging in and out quickly and controlling Knight, until Knight hits a double cross body then tags in Dozovic. I think we’re gonna see the Caterpillar. There it is! But Dozovic gets dropped with a DDT, and the Sons retake control.

Adam Cole wants to make people fear NXT, and says Ricochet has his property. EC3 interrupts. It looks like we’re gonna get an EC3-Adam Cole match!

LIGERO VS. “WILD BOAR” MIKE HITCHMAN
I don’t know either of these guys, but from the crowd reaction to their entrances, Ligero is the face and Wild Boar is the heel. As you can imagine with a dude named Wild Board, he’s THICK. He looks like a British Rhyno. Ligero is not small, but he’s certainly at a size and strength advantage.

MARK ANDREWS VS. JOE COFFEY w/MARK COFFEY
Huge size advantage for Coffey, but Andrews is ridiculously fast and evasive. Andrews is out-muscled in an ill-advised early lock up, but once he starts to fly he gets some good shots in. Coffey is a big, strong dude, and can recover a lot more quickly, so it’s going to be easier for him to recover from Andrews’ attacks than it will be for Andrews if Coffey gets his power offense going.
